Acrylic on board 16cm x 16cm
Thought I'd try a stylised version of my pet cactus. I painted from a different photo to the one I used for the painting below a few months back. I had been pretty thrilled with the outcome of the one below as the looseness seemed to come quite easily - particularly as I hadn't painted for ages. I'm less enamoured of today's version but it was a lot of fun and I'm pleased to be experimenting with new styles.
I apologise profusely for not responding to comments as I have been pressed for time. And to make things more difficult, this morning I badly strained my back and neck. It has been getting steadily worse as the day progresses - sitting too long doesn't help! I look forward to visiting everyone's blogs very soon and really appreciate everyone's lovely comments.
One of my daughters has come to the rescue tonight and is cooking dinner - I did the grocery shop and will have to clean up! A pretty good deal I think.
